Explore ‘Stories of Morocco’ Traditional Dishes at ALATi by Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok

ALATi, the Mediterranean restaurant at Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok, takes you on a new experience journey of contrasting flavours with cuisines from the Mediterranean region all the way to various provinces of Morocco, situated in North Africa, available from 1 August until 30 November 2022.

Discover the ‘Stories of Morocco’, a flavourful culinary journey of classic dishes from various regions of Morocco. Executive Chef Carlo Valenziano has redesigned the classics to evoke gastronomic memories, with bracing flavours of each Moroccan city. Chef Carlo’s inspiration comes from his exciting journey within the country, tasting popular dishes and meeting with many local chefs and culinary experts. There is so much to discover in the stories behind this fantastic cuisine.

The journey begins with amusing appetisers, featuring ‘Shakshuka egg’ – spiced tomato and bell pepper stew, soft egg, merguez and fresh herbs, served with Arabic bread;

‘Harira soup’, traditional chickpea, lentil and tomato soup, fresh coriander and lemon; and the famous ‘Pastilla’ – filo pastry stuffed with spiced chicken, almonds, cinnamon and sugar dust, shaped uniquely like a roll for sharing and served with harissa, which cannot be missed.

Chef Carlo’s main-course selection of aromatic tempting stews includes ‘Lahm Tagine’ – lamb stew, Ras El Hanout and honey jus, prunes, almonds and cinnamon; ‘chicken tagine’ – chicken leg stew, lemon confit, olives and capers, cooked in a saffron and turmeric bouillon; and ‘couscous royale’ – steamed semolina, merguez, grilled chicken, lamb stew, seasonal vegetables and spicy bouillon.

This fascinating journey around Morocco ends with a selection of delicious desserts, featuring ‘orange with cinnamon’ – marinated orange, honey, cinnamon and almond, served with mint ice cream; ‘semolina cake’ – almond semolina cake, vanilla ice cream, candied orange; and ‘Moroccan almond pastry’ – filo pastry filled with almond compote, orange blossom water and caramelised almonds. Each carefully crafted dish conveys its own story and waits for fellow gourmands to experience it.
